as einstein, they say was lousy in math in elementary school, martin luther king, who i think was a genius at what he did, yet very human in the sense that with the possible exception of my wife, i never met anybody who is geographically so out to lunch. we had a crazy conversation. i thought he was putting me on. he said, michael, we're in madrid now; right? yeah. well, the peninsula here, portugal here, madrid in the middle here. okay, so from here, where's rome? i thought, well, i do a little france, the boot, and rome there, due east of here. is he putting me on or what? he said, and tomorrow i'm going to amsterdam, so where's that from here? so i sketch in op this napkin. i wish i saved the napkin. i sketch in on a napkin northern europe more or less saying here's amsterdam. it's basically northeast of here. then he asked me -- i just couldn't believe it -- the last question was, and, okay, so from madrid, where's the united states? i was looking at him, and i said, he's got to be putting me on, pulling me leg. this is not real. he meant it. i drew sort of like maine and florida, and,

the situation and come up with solutions. einstein said it clearly, the definition of insanity is to do the same thing and look for different results. what really occurrence me is how the furthermore reserve is going to step in and stimulate the economy to $85 billion, they are printing to try to buy up our own debt and our treasury bonds so they can stimulate the economy that way. that's know the way to do t. we have to get the right fiscal policy and monetary policy. >> but look at what jay carney said, he blames the republicans for the automatic spending cuts, but he neglects to include that both democrats and republicans agreed to that 2011 debt ceiling with that set in motion, more than $500 billion in defense cuttings and whatever. it's the selective mind of everybody, you know, this is -- this is you know, if the defense -- if the -- if the defense cuts are contributing to this, or anything, have you to look at the fact who, agreed to it. it was both parties. >> you are absolutely right. also, i think that -- mr. carney needs to understand that the whole term of sequester emanated out of
